Lazar Moiseyevich Kaganovich
Birth: Nov. 22, 1893, Russian Federation
Death: Jul. 25, 1991
Moscow
Moscow Federal City, Russian Federation

Soviet Statesman. A member of the Bolshevik Party from 1911, Kaganovich was one of the leaders of the October 1917 Communist Revolution that swept Russia. He was a close associate of Joseph Stalin and aided his rise to supreme power in the 1920s. From 1925 to 1928 he was the Communist leader in the Ukraine, but was very unpopular among the citizenry and was recalled back to Moscow. Kaganovich has been blamed for helping install policies that caused millions of deaths during the Ukraine's Great Famine of 1932 and 1933, but nevertheless remained part of Stalin's trusted inner circle until the dictator's death in 1953. He was an early mentor of future leader Nikita Khrushchev, but quickly lost influence after Khrushchev took power. In 1957, Kaganovich and former Stalinists Vyacheslav Molotov, Kliment Voroshilov, and Georgy Malenkov attempted to oust Khrushchev after the new leader became openly critical of Stalin. The coup failed and Kaganovich was forced to retire. He died at 97, shortly before the final breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991. (bio by: Mr. Badger Hawkeye)
